the president really think it will come to that? >> at this point, no. they don't. because the white house is hopeful, first of all, that the agreement that the senators are working on can actually move forward after the meeting here. there is a modest uptick in enthusiasm about that possibility. but as for the backup plan, there's no real likelihood that would ever come to a vote. because republicans would likely block it in both the senate and it would likely not come to a vote in the house. so that's really more rhetoric than it is reality and we have to hope for option "a," getting an agreement in the senate, if we're going to avoid going over the cliff. >> rhetoric versus reality, that's always a tricky place to be in washington. listen, this is serious high-stakes political poker here are what can you tell us about the meeting at the white house today? >> well, we've heard different takes, you hear everybody has a different per suspecttive of what happened depending on which party they're in. the big takeaway is everybody left agreeing on the next step which is that the senate will c

the gop is standing up for the rich what the democrats don't understand is that the hostility towards how much washington end spends that this whole discussion of the last six weeks has been about raising taxes on the wealthy. >> let's say we get a deal and it's short-term spending cuts and people don't have someone to blame because we don't go over the cliff, but the markets don't like it the world economy doesn't like it and ultimately our currency becomes in jeopardy as the currency of the world. >> at this point they will blame the republicans. if you can the american people to choose or dig in what they really want is to end the spending more than raising the tacks. they will accept a tax increase on the wealthiest americans. but an even higher percentage support significant spending cuts. and that's not part of the democratic package, so what i'm saying is that both sides here have a problem with the american people, and it's why congress has an 11% job approval rating. gadhafi had an 17% approval rating, and that's from the people he was killing. >>> how ar
